Tofu Replacement & Chickpea Alternative

If you are getting tired of using chickpeas to make your breakfast scramble then I have the thing for you. If you can’t use chickpeas due to fibroids and just want to eat less of them, then I have the ingredient for you!
Soy as we know is not recommended for consumption no matter how they dress it up or package it. This recipe is traditionally made with either soy milk or dairy milk in some cultures, but in the African Bio- Mineral culture – created by Dr. Sebi I am beginning a new tradition using hemp seed milk.

Hemp Seed Crumble – Recipe

  • 1 cup hemp seed hearts
  • 3 cups of spring water
  • blend to make milk
  • place in a sauce pan and boil and stir lightly the entire time
  • The milk will begin to form and may even begin to curdle
  • After the milk begins to bubble reduce the heat to a simmer and squeeze in 2 key limes (remove seeds)
  • 2 Key lime squeezed – this is needed to make the milk curdle
  • Allow the mixture to cool and pour it into a fine strainer (place cheesecloth over the strainer) and sit it over a bowl to catch the liquid.
  • In the strainer you will see lots of curdled hemp seeds milk and this is what is used to make the crumble.
  • After about 2 minutes to allow most of the water to drain off, pick up the cheesecloth with the curds inside and twist to remove all excess liquids.
  • You will be left with the curds that will then be used in your breakfast scramble.

 

Make sure to order hemp seeds and have them delivered to your home before you run out!

The scramble

was made using the hemp crumble and I added it into the pan with my sauteed peppers, onions, mushrooms and plum tomatoes.

A Reflection of My Transition to Dr. Sebi’s African Bio-Mineral Therapy Program

 

black-man-cure

A year ago I shared this story with one of my Face book groups and a year later it still holds true and thought I would share this today!

I have been asked if this path is hard and what changes have I noticed since embarking on Dr. Sebi’s African Bio Mineral Therapy approach to eating. Right away I have to say this path hasn’t been hard nor boring. I am enjoying my new taste buds!!! It has been amazing to see the changes that are occurring with me overall.

For those that know me, know how much I like sweets and how I would often give up a full meal just to balance out eating dessert. I still enjoy sweet treats and I still eat sweet treats! The difference is I don’t have to skip dinner to have dessert.

12440659_10205999046604120_5224061708741569186_o

Nothing that I have encountered has been difficult to embrace. Once I fully got it and realize how harmful the traditional foods I consumed were to my body and to my futures quality of life, it was a no brainier I had to begin to eat to live.

Do I miss eating certain foods? Like red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting? Absolutely not!!! I would not have imagined ever saying no I don’t miss one of my past favorite deserts but I know I can have any dessert I want. The only difference being conscious of my pH being alkaline deserts aren’t going to lead to my demise but quite the opposite, there going to lead to my excellent health!!

My advice to anyone starting on the path would be to connect to https://www.facebook.com/groups/alkalinevegangirls/ and the other  Dr. Sebi groups, we are providing a wealth of knowledge. I would also encourage anyone new to watch as many Dr. Sebi videos

to help you fully overstand what being an alkaline vegan means and to learn of the many benefits from living on this path.

Additionally, I have to say have fun with the foods on the nutritional guide. watch cooking videos and learn to replace foods not on the list with alkaline foods and see just how simple it is to begin to eat and enjoy every bite.

To help make the journey less tedious we created 50 Sensational Electric Vegan Meals to use a helpful tool when consuming food from Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide. To purchase the book click here!! https://electric-vegan.myshopify.com/

FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH

Recipe: The water of 1 young coconut, handful of fresh basil and 2 tbs of sea moss jelly.

FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH

THE HEART:
The heart is one of the most important organs in the entire human body. It is really nothing more than a pump, composed of muscle which pumps blood throughout the body, beating approximately 72 times per minute of our lives. The heart pumps the blood, which carries all the vital materials which help our bodies function and removes the waste products that we do not need. For example, the brain requires oxygen and glucose, which, if not received continuously, will cause it to loose consciousness. Muscles need oxygen, glucose and amino acids, as well as the proper ratio of sodium, calcium and potassium salts in order to contract normally. The glands need sufficient supplies of raw materials from which to manufacture the specific secretions. If the heart ever ceases to pump blood the body begins to shut down and after a very short period of time will die.

WHAT DOES THE HEAT & OREGANO HAVE IN COMMON:

Oregano ~ Known for its ability to prevent and cure several ailments to a great extent, oregano is a rich source for controlling cholesterol& fighting dietary fiber, as well as antioxidants such as vitamin-C. (To store fresh oregano, snip off its tips and keep the stalks upright in some water, just like flowers.)

Antioxidants fight against free radicals (which are basically charged molecules capable of causing undesired chemical reactions) and thus help prevent heart disease, among other health issues. Oregano helps fight off inflammation inducing free radicals, and protect the heart against ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL).

The Lifestyle of An Alkaline Vegan Girl ~ From Shopping to Cooking to Preparing Meals

a1343640207_10

Ready! Set! Go! You have made the decision so many of us have made and that decision is to be an alkaline vegan. After learning about the alkaline vegan lifestyle through viewing DVDs and attending live lectures of  Dr. Sebi I made the same decision many others have made to commit to the lifestyle of an alkaline vegan.

Now that you’ve made the decision you may be asking yourself what is next. There are many pointers that all lead to great health but for this blog I want to focus on 3 questions asked  by Naya one of the members in my Facebook groups Alkaline Vegan Girls, 1) where do you grocery shop, 2) how often, and 3) what are the pantry essentials? https://www.facebook.com/groups/alkalinevegangirls/  These are the my thoughts about the questions asked:

“My Top 5 Places to Shop”

farmers-market

  1. Local Farmer’s Markets ~ fresh produce, grains, flours, and spices, nuts
  2. Local International Markets ~ fresh produce with Hispanic origins, fresh herbs for seasoning foods
  3. Local Health Food Stores ~ loose herbs for teas, some grains, nuts and seeds
  4. Chain stores ~ While I am out in the community working with client’s I look to see what is on the nutritional guide and sometimes the  chain stores will have spelt and quinoa flour
  5. Online ~ herbs for teas and seasonings, pastas and breads.

How Often Do I Shop and What are the Pantry Essentials:

stockingavegankitchen-lg

I shop weekly and usually at the beginning of the week on Sundays or the end of the week on Saturday. The key essentials for an alkaline vegan to have in the pantry are the following:

  1. whole grains  & whole grain flour~ spelt, kamut, quinoa, wild rice
  2. cooking oils ~ grape seed and avocado
  3. fresh produce ~ onions, peppers, mushrooms, kale, dandelions greens, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, chayote squash, key limes, seeded grapes, burro bananas, fresh young coconuts, green/yellow, frozen fruit for smoothies
  4. Nuts, seeds and beans ~walnuts, hemp seeds, and garbanzo beans dry
  5. Raw agave’ nectar and pitted dates for sweeteners
  6. Fresh or dried herbs for seasonings ~ ginger, oregano, basil, fennel, onion powder, sage, dill, all spice, clove

IMG_2350-1_5fb8efe9-6b72-4475-a77c-f65693f86c14_large

With the above foods in your house you can make several meals to include soups, teas, stews, salads, stir fries, cookies, ice cream, pancakes, veggie vurgers, break fast meals and several other dishes.

An Alkaline Vegan Girl On the Road

I’m on the road traveling to visit family and it is a must to be prepared with electric foods when traveling! No worries I learned from the best, packed my clothes first and later packed my food! 2 1/2 gallon size smoothies: Raspberry & Mango explosion and Strawberry & Raspberry & Soursop Trio. In the small crockpots I have sautéed kale with onions and peppers on top of a trios of wild rice quinoa and amaranth And one large sautéed mushroom . The second pot has the burro stew with peppers, onions and mushrooms on top of the wild rice trio. I made some ginger cookies and left them right on the counter. Let’s not forget the 1/2 gallon of spring water and key limes, and all my herbs.

The Benefits of an Alkaline Vegan Lifestyle?

The Benefits of an Alkaline Vegan Life

An alkaline lifestyle is about consuming natural fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds along with natural herbs, spices and spring water. Not all foods including some fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts or seeds  are natural and should not be consumed due to their acidic nature. Learn about the natural foods that will create a healthy alkaline pH and reclaim your health!
